Audience Reviews for Road to Bali

    As Indonesian, to be honest, I'm so offended with the horrible and the far from close to correct portrayal of Balinese in the movie, but then I know it's the old Hollywood and old Hollywood was very racist, xenophobic and stuff so yeah, man, but I'm still pissed.

    Hoo-boy! The boys are on their last legs in this effort to kick the mule to get another mile out of it, only the poor animal is just about dead. Game and spirited kicking almost give the illusion that animal is moving ... but its not. The only reason to take this trip (as Paramount well understood) was the charisma of its leads, but there's really nothing here for you.

    This should have been the last "Road" movie, it's a lot better than road to hong kong. I really liked this movie it's very funny and the story is good.

    A light-hearted comedy and one of the better "Road To" movies featuring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope delivering one-liners and Hollywood inside jokes. The movie kicks off in classic slapstick fashion with Hope and Crosby bailing from the big city to remote South America, to find themselves at the peril of wicked native cults. So far, so good. Crosby and Hope's timing is perfect and you can tell how much of their dialogue is ad-libbed. Yet, despite being inspired by classic comic duos such as Laurel & Hardy or Martin & Lewis, they never reach the same quality. They comic genius of Laurel is nowhere to be found and the music numbers never reach the quality of Dino's. Still, the movie's humour is refreshingly surreal, constantly breaking the fourth wall and you cannot help laughing when Bob Hope proclaims: "He is going to sing now folks, time to get some popcorn". Hope and Crosby joke about the Oscars, other actors, other movies, their off-screen persona, the movie itself ("Is the Picture over ?"). The movie has a tendency to be very campy at times. Have you ever imagined Dorothy Lamour peddling in a lagoon within native ruins, singing and wearing nutin' for the butim' ? Well, here is your chance to see it. I highly recommend this movie if you are into classic Hollywood, the movie feels like taking a trip with some friends down the Hollywood Blvd. Watch it here: http://www.classiccinemaonline.com/1/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=200:road-to-bali-1952&catid=92:comedy&Itemid=290 Henrik
